Remove United States District Attorney Carmen Ortiz from office for overreach in the case of Aaron Swartz.


For those of you who do not know of the tragedy that happened just weeks ago.Please search Google for Aaron Swartz.He was the co-founder of Reddit.com and had a major influence on protecting our freedom of speech on the internet.Basically the Aaron was given 50 years (more than the amount given to most murders) for trying to distribute academic articles to the public since he believed education and information should be free. Since the punishment didn't fit the crime and there was nothing he could do about it so he committed suicide.

Here's a link to the story:


Here's a comparison video (You decide weather it fits the crime or not):

*Remove United States Government from power


There, that'll actually solve the problem. We live in an age of censorship and black-ops style government and most people actually are okay with this.

Yes, he was assassinated by the US government for starting a website and developing standards. No. get real.

What we can accuse them for is bullying this man to death, and in the likely event government officials were simply following protocol, change said protocol. Some laws are just outdated and draconian and do not belong in a world where treehuggers get jobs and adults watch My Little Pony.

Right he gets sentenced to 50 years... clearly they needed to assassinate him and he couldn't possibly have felt he was in a corner and thus killed himself!

But in your world I suppose anyone who does anything illegal and dies was assassinated. You'd be great at yellow journalism, Pocky. 'mysteriously'. Yes, suicide is mysterious.

They've killed a lot of people. It's not that big of a stretch, they do anything they can get away with. If we're not gonna revolt over Tupac, we're not gonna revolt over this bearded softie, and they know it.
